Nickel & Dime
Neighborhood Song Performances    

August 2007
Tustin, California

On August 19th, we kicked off a series of special outdoor performances featuring the songs from Nickel & Dime. We brought a little bit of Broadway straight into the heart of our neighborhood. An audience of all ages was surprised and delighted at what followed, and an endearing summer evening was had by all.

September 2007
Orange, California

On September 23rd, we ushered in the first day of fall with a beautiful late afternoon performance.

On a lively cul-de-sac in the city of Orange, puffy clouds and a crisp blue sky were the backdrops for another show highlighting the songs from Nickel & Dime.

The audience participation was wonderful, and we were so grateful for their enthusiasm.
